BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - A Buffalo school is helping parents and kids use all the resources available to them through a program called "Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports."

P.B.I.S helps parents identify behavioral issues in their kids and solve problems like acting out on the school bus and absenteeism.

The program lays out classroom and behavior rules in terms of respect. For example, cleaning up after one's self would be considered "respecting property."
